Continuing the discussion from How would I calculate the size of a folder (including all contents)?:
- Put this script in an Execute AppleScript Action.
- It will return size (in size-appropriate units) of all items (files, folders, sub-folders) in the folder currently selected in the Finder.
- If a Folder is NOT selected, an error msg is returned.
How To Use
- Select Folder in Finder
- Trigger this script, or macro with script in an Execute AppleScript Action.
